Work Experience Programme

Our application process for work experience in 2023 is now closed and will reopen in January 2024.

Our work experience programme usually runs between June and September each year. In order to be considered for a place on the programme, you will need to be at least a 2nd year Law undergraduate.

The programme is very popular and places are strictly limited. Our work experience placement is for one week and is unpaid. We offer a broad range of placement opportunities and the areas where possible work experience may take place are listed below:


  • Agriculture & Estates
  • Real Estate – Commercial and Residential
  • Business (including Employment)
  • Divorce and Family 
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Court of Protection and Inheritance Disputes
  • Private Client (Wills, Trusts, Tax & Administration of Estates)
  • Intellectual Property

Please note that whilst the list above is representative of some areas of work Birkett Long Solicitors deals with, no guarantee of placements in particular areas can be made. Every effort will be made to try to accommodate the wishes of applicants where possible.
